As we Hare seen John Boggs had be fault he would put off till to Morow what could be and should be done to Day he contrived to keep misplace looking heat and tidy Decanto at cer Tain periods he would be seized with a sort of a renovating at and would then Roll up his sleeves and go at it. Bat this did t work always. Many a time very important things were he Felt like if that was a great expression of his i felt1 Lite it sometimes there would be a breakdown that bad to be attended to immediately and while to had Tho Hammer and nails in Bis hands he would fix up several other things that bad been awaiting his coming. Very often an hour wins required Over something which would not have i consumed five minutes of Hia time had he taken it in band when be first i discovered it. And not on Ylio but he.

I said John rather dubiously i did say something about i but then i did t think twas to bad i yet Yon knew it needed mending John for you said so yourself. I wish you would learn to about these things. The cows tread upon it and h e knew that a heavy of would break through there at once. But the. Floor was mended yet for nil that. When the ring or Hub band came Home or. Boggs went at work to put it on. But it would not work. He had missed ajl Gure in his calculations the. Spokes had worn the sockets so much that All the strap s of Iron in the world could never fit that broken glad to come on and furnish teams if he would keep them. He bad Bay and brain in plenty and of course wished 0 have the most of it eaten no on the lace. By Solh no his horses and oxen e had made a Lea r profit of about one Milf of All he got for them and now if in could gel some one to come and fur wish in return take one half be proceeds of the Job and have their animals kept be would do Well. But in found it More difficult than he bad expected to obtain the help. He could and plenty of men who would gladly ome with such teams As they owned at be wanted heavier ones. At length be bit upon the very Man. I be found he said to his one evening on his return from a visit o a neigh Borini town. I be found ust the Man. He a got teams enough and will come on As soon As wanted asked Matilda quite leased with her husband s Success. 1 Aaron Litolf. You know him Don t e t he s got six Yoke of oxen and our Good horses and he says if i la Ive him equal shares of what i am to have and. Take care of his animals and men hell come Aaron Boyf f repeated the wife. I know him Well. If he says he will come then you May depend upon him. He never makes a Promise until he in tips he can keep it and he never undertakes to do a thing which he cannot do As should be done. Spine people Call him Odd arid i Dort t know but that be is in one sense of the does his own business Kas everything in its. Proper place and will have no one about him if he can help it who will not follow Bis example. Flee to know Hirw Well. Tiddy guide an. Easy husband sometimes. She bad intended to ask her lord to go out and fix the door after supper but As he was already chafed she tied to say no Moro at present. The facts about that barn door were these the lower hinge had been use less Over two weeks but had been made to work being careful in opening and closing the door. Jut some three Days had the upper one became so dependence could be placed upon it. John had noticed it and he said to himself it must be fixed and he had resolved to do it he Felt like it.

Muttered the disappointed Man As he found that he could not make the thing work. If t had Only fixed the thing when i d ought to t his would t have been 1 it s too bad bad i but there was no help for it. A new Hub must to. Made. He managed to find an old wheel which he could use while the Wright was filing his and in this in cd for table Way he managed to get along losing without a Day s time.

If k make it Good for me i should like to have him Here very Well this coming fall and that is if you most have some one so John Boggs gave himself no More uneasiness upon the subject of the work. Or. Eiolf was owning Over to to look at the Timber before he closed barn and passed through into tue Yard. He set the Back door up after him and braced the Stout Cord stick against it to hold it in its place. I declare that must be fixed i la attend to that right off he went out Intro the Field and when he came Back he Over to a neigh Bor s to see about help and remained to blare till dinner time.

Rolf was much pleased with the pro posed plan in every Way. As near As they could calculate it would Lake then from Thi men whom h the bargain but then John bad explained everything Folly to him and he was perfectly satisfied. One Day John tie Bis Colt of in the stall and he found that the Edge of the trough was worn almost Down to the Hole through which the Halter was tied. He knew that it was not Safe a slight pull would break it out. I be said to himself i must fix that when i get he meant when he Felt like it for to bad ample time then. All tbat1 was necessary was to step to the Wagon Louse get an Inch and a half anger and bereft new Hole. It would have taken him five minutes to hate per formed the whole operation he led Tho Colt into the next stall and then went to the House and sat Down. The old habit was not yet. He would fix the tie Hole when he had Tintel John Bogge quite re formed for All his place looked to Well an evening 0r two afterwards just its be wits sitting a fwd to supper one of his daughters came in and told him them with themselves and four other Ruten and six yokes of oxen and fou , a Hundred Days.
